Due to imminent retirements they have an exciting opportunity for 2 individuals to join the Clinical Microbiology team providing a comprehensive infection service to the local population and tertiary services across the region. They are seeking applications from suitably qualified Consultant Medical Microbiologists, Consultant Clinical Scientists in Medical Microbiology, or dual accredited Consultants in Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.
The Trust is the largest hospital in the South West Peninsula and is a specialist centre for various specialties.
There is ample scope for development of specialist interests within infection management, and the trust has an active research department.
The state of the art microbiology department is based in purpose built laboratories and offers a wide range of diagnostic testing, and a full SARS-CoV-2 testing service (PCR and antibody). The locality has seen low numbers of COVID-19 cases throughout this pandemic, and a wide variety of clinical microbiology work continues.
New ways of working arising from the COVID19 pandemic have shown that there is flexibility for working from home when clinical commitments allow, and the 10PA jobplan (including 1:7 on-call) is usually worked across 4 weekdays.This is a great opportunity for IMGs practicing in the UK who are looking to work towards their CESR and Specialist Registration in Radiology, or UK based consultants looking for a change to their current working set up.
